7A -C/D Win 09 Quiz 4 DL Sec Last 6 digits ID # Name (Last, First) Grade 1) The potential energy between two particles as a function of separation is graphed to the right. Starting from a temperature of zero Kelvin, we add a total of 10 x 10 -21 J energy. Describe the behavior of the system after we wait some time. Include an explanation as to whether the two atoms are bound or not . Ignore interactions with any other particles. 2) This time, we give the two particles a fixed total energy of -4 x 10

Explain. c) Over some time, what are the average PE and the average KE for the particles? Explain. PE + KE = E Tot KE = (1/2)mv^2 |F| = |d(PE)/dr| = |slope| of PE vs. r graph Separation (10-10 m ) PE (10-21 J) 2-2 4-4...
